The issuance of a temporary restraining order may occur for a variety of reasons. The subject of domestic violence most often comes to mind when people think about the need for a restraining order. Temporary restraining orders are generally provided when there is an “ex parte appearance.” An “ex parte appearance” is when only one party is actually present during the courtroom proceedings. A court may issue a temporary restraining order that limits the behaviors and locations where an individual is allowed to be as they relate to the individual requesting the restraining order issuance.
Before a restraining order is effective, it must be served to the individual being restrained so that they are aware of the court’s orders regarding their behaviors. Once the party being temporarily restrained has been served, they are then provided with an opportunity to present their side to the court so that the decision can be made as to whether or not this restraining order should become permanent. The restrained person’s opportunity to defend themself usually happens at an “Order to Show Cause” hearing that is often scheduled within a few weeks of the temporary restraining order’s initiation.
